Impact of Lost Forms

Operating Room Delays, Provider Frustration and Patient Anxiety

According to a recent study in JAMA Surgery, 66 percent of patients were missing a surgical consent form at the time of surgery, which resulted in a delay of 14 percent of operative cases. Missing consent forms are a frequent cause of operating room delays and have varied effects on:

  • Patient care
  • Faculty satisfaction
  • Resident workflow
  • Hospital productivity
